Tularosa high school represents some of the best and worse pets of our public school system. There are a handful of dedicated teachers who love their jobs and do more than asked. These teachers are amazing and us students learn so much from them. On the contrary, there are also a handful of teachers who don’t care and don’t teach. Moreover, we have a nice choice of extracurricular activities and athletic programs. Tularosa is small but has a lot to offer. Just remember it is also offering teenage pregnancy and easy drugs.

I am upset that this school focuses solely on athletics and they will take from the knowledge bowl program to continue giving to the athletics department. They cut back on our trips to other schools so that they could afford gas for the football trips. There is no music or theater clubs. The yearbook club gets over run by "popular" kids who are biased about who gets featured in the year book. The student council gets over run by more "popular" kids who do not allow any one else's opinions or thoughts to be valid. The knowledge bowl program is the only academic club for students who are not athletic and want something else to put on their college resume and yet it is slowly dying. Overall the classes are not challenging and I never had homework. History classes were the worst because all we did was watch movies (not history related what-so-ever or even educational for that matter). Then when we were not watching movies we focused on practice tests for the state standardized test. We would just do the same test, over and over again. Only the English classes prepare you for college and thank goodness for that.
Overall I loved going to Tularosa High. I think it is a great small town school. I liked the closeness that everyone has, its pretty easy to be friends with everyone in the school. The only thing that I would change would be to make the academics better. I know that because the academics are not especially great here I will have to be tutored in math during college. Other than that Tularosa High is a great place to go to school.
